Mrs. Sumner's Classroom News

We are off to a great start!

I am so proud of how hard the kiddo's have worked to learn the classroom procedures and rules of the school. It is going to be an amazing school year! We will be starting "Star of the Week" next week. I will send home a calendar when it is your child's turn. I will also send home instructions when it is your child's turn.

Now that we are off to such a great start of kindergarten, I am ready for any parents or grandparents who would love to come in and volunteer in the classroom. I need volunteers to work with children, cut out materials, and work in the teacher room on upcoming projects that we will be doing. Please make sure that you turn in your volunteer form to the office. If I have an overwhelming amount, I will set up a schedule. Please send me an email of the days and times that you can help out. Thank you, I greatly appreciate it!
